After the success of last year’s A Day in Bangkok Stop Motion Video, I thought it would be fun to do another stop-motion video in another city. This time around we went to Hong Kong. Kowloon is the section of Hong Kong located across the harbor from the skyline of Hong Kong Island. It’s known for its bright lights, shopping, and food.
The name Kowloon stems from the nine dragons, a term which refers to eight mountains and a Chinese emperor: Kowloon Peak, Tung Shan, Tate’s Cairn, Temple Hill, Unicorn Ridge, Lion Rock, Beacon Hill, Crow’s Nest and Emperor Bing (Song Dynasty). With population of over two million, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated urban areas on earth.
I created the stop-motion video with my own photos as well as those of Juno Kim of Mastering the Art of Travel Photography.
